Step 2. Read the title of the second news item

Thanks to Tony for the link.

And I saved the best for last. weird but true is a huge list of ideas, theories, scientic facts, oddities, pseudoscience, and the like. A lot of it is fascinating, and surprisingly, most of the snippets have references associated with them. A sample snippet:

“train wrecks: in train wrecks the number of passengers in damaged cars is less than average by so much and so often that it cannot be a chance occurrence. somehow we know not to get on them. (work done by william cox and reported by lyall watson)”

Thanks to Mark for that last link.
